Sanitize with @beautysoclean

I’d like to think we all take hygiene pretty seriously, but what about our makeup? Bacteria and germs grow on the surface of makeup and cosmetic brushes, and all that buildup transfers onto your skin causing infections, allergies, and even acne! YUCK! Beauty So Clean makes it easy and safe to effectively sanitize our makeup and brushes, even when we’re on the go. Their sanitizing kit comes complete with a Cosmetic Sanitizer Wipes, perfect for wiping lipsticks and cosmetic pencils, a Cosmetic Sanitizer Mist, for press powers and creme foundations, and a Conditioning Brush Cleanser, to keep your brushes clean.

Of course, the first thing I did when I received the kit was to spray down all my makeup, and I already see a difference in my skin. Clean makeup = less breakouts; what’s not to love? Next, I cleaned all my brushes, and was very pleased with how easily and quickly the cleanser removed all the leftover makeup on my brushes, without leaving any oily residue.

It worked wonders on my brushes, imagine what it could do for yours! To learn more, check out their website , or “Like” Beauty So Clean on Facebook!



I Love @PMHLoves – Philippe Matignon Hosiery

There’s no mistaking sexy, and there’s no substitute for luxurious. I think that’s what Philippe Matignon had in mind when they designed their line of ultra feminine, ultra luxurious hosiery.

I was lucky enough to try a pair. The fit was impeccable, thanks to 3D Lycra, a process that covers each hosiery fiber with twice as many Lycra fibers as most hosiery brands, ensuring the best possible fit and comfort.

It felt like my legs were wrapped, perfectly in silk. What do you think?

I loved the intricate design.

Magic Mushrooms

I’ve been eating A LOT of mushrooms lately, and couldn’t help but wonder if there were any health benefits associated with this yummy… fungi. Turns out all mushrooms are loaded with essential nutrients like selenium (good for the bladder), iron, antioxidants, vitamins B2 and B3, potassium, they also increase the production of antiviral and other proteins that help with repairing body tissues and enhancing the immune system.



Love, love, love with #TheLuckyOne

I went and saw The Lucky One yesterday and I thought it was really good. A lot of clichés but I don’t think that’s a surprise and I also don’t think that’s what makes the movie negative (I’ve been seeing a lot of negative responses toward the movie).

Maybe I’m playing favorites…I love Nicholas Sparks’ books & I’m a fan of Zac Efron 🙂 . The movie also stars Taylor Schilling and a really cute German shepherd. You can’t hate on the dog (Zeus) if you hate the movie!

Any opinions?
